Those who attended the University of Lagos (UNILAG) with him were already familiar with the lyricist who won a talent contest during his first year in the school, before becoming Magixx, one of the school’s most talented musicians.
According to Okumu, Magixx’s voice is a breath of fresh air in a period marked by afrobeats’ global re-emergence.
“Though he is still in the early stages of his career, he has already won the hearts and adoration of thousands of fans.
“His debut, Magixx EP is vibrant and transitional, presenting a varying Magixx at every turn.
“The youngster has already been nominated for Headies Rookie of the Year after settling into his aesthetic and unique charisma,” she said.
With his ‘Love Don’t Cost a Dime’ track dominating the airwaves for the majority of Q2 2022, and his performance on one of the year’s largest Afrobeats singles, ‘Overdose,’ Magixx is primed and ready for a defining 2022. (NAN)
